The restaurant, named Ho Lee Fook, meaning “good fortune for your mouth,”will feature Yu’s reinterpretation of classic Chinese flavours served in a funky and modern setting. His menu will include Yunnan-style steak tartare with hot and sour sauce, fried Brussels sprouts with cauliflower and bacon chili jam, raw Hokkaido scallop with snow peas, pickled enoki and fish fragrant dressing and clams cooked in pork broth with fennel.
Widely recognized for making his mark on Sydney’s happening food scene, Yu’s signature style of creative Chinese cuisine has evolved out of his unique cultural background as an ethnic Taiwanese who emigrated to North America at a young age. He later spent several years at renowned Tetsuya’s in Sydney, where his use of modern techniques and aesthetic sensibilities were fine-tuned. His hip Asian Sydney restaurant, Ms. G’s, won a prestigious hat from the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide in its second year followed quickly by Mr. Wong, which received two hats within a year of opening its doors.
With such a stellar reputation, we have high hopes for chef Jowett Yu and his first Hong Kong project.
